    Huh. I did the reverse. I used to beleive in God. Then I became an agnostic. Then I became out-right convinced that there's not such thing.

    Well, who's to say? The religion thing didn't work for me, but if it works for you, that's great. Be pretty boring world if we all thought & acted the same!

    Oh, to be young again, when everything can change from minute to minute. So does this mean you're back to looking at Berry again or will you go for the gusto and apply to Bob Jones?

    You either believe there is a God Almighty or down right reject it. It's sad how many people belittle God to the word "religion".

    Hehe, weird, huh? Feels surreal but I'm not making a big dealio about it. Figured I'd tell ya. What changed my mind was that all that BS happened thousands of years ago and I'm not gonna worry about it. Bugsy helped me out a lot on that.

    Maybe some of you will think I've got my own perverted version of christianity going, and if you do, that's ok. lol. I'm doing what works for me.
    Thanks for sharing this awesome news! I can't express how happy I am for you that you have found Christ. Forget about the labeling or the institutions. You are a Christian, a Christ follower! Who cares what people think of you, have they not committed sin themselves? No one but Christ lived without sin and thanks to Him we can communicate with God because of His love for us.

    Also remember the Christian life is a journey, we don't all start from the same place or fall to the same sins. Just a quick question for you: If you're surprised now about how your life has changed now, do you think you might be even more surprised how much your life changes as you grow closer to God?

    I hope not lol. I'm fine the way I am now. I WAS happy before, just unsure. I was fine then 3 days ago I started to worry about it a LOT for some reason. I became a christian out of fear and that's a bad reason I know.

    I'm not going to be religious, i'm secular I guess. I'm not gonna worry about sin or anything.

    I think while I was an atheist I really believed but suppressed it. Lol.. I believed but didn't know it? lol

    I think you'll be in for a surprise . I have changed so much since I've started pursuing Christ and I thank Him for that.

    Fear is a just reason, I mean common you don't really want to go up against God now do you ? However I hope that when you have some time you will read the book of John, a good starting point when you're just meeting God. I started there myself. You will find that the love God has for you and how important you are to Him is the ultimate reasoning to become a Christian.
